From the Author:

"I started writing in Grade 5. I wrote a story about some animals in a forest that was being threatened by logging. I made it into a homemade book with illustrations I had done myself. My teacher found it in my desk at school and made me read it to the class. I vividly remember this next part. A girl in the class (who is now one of my best friends!) spoke up and said I had copied the movie Fern Gully. Perhaps I had been inspired by the movie but I had written that story myself from my own ideas. Then my teacher, who everyone in the class pretty much hated and thought was a witch out of the Roald Dahl novel, said to me in this doomful voice "Next time use your own brain!" I never wrote fiction again until I was an adult. Its amazing how a young person's creativity can be squashed so easily by a negative and harsh criticizing adult.

When I was in grade 8, I started writing poetry. This became my passion and its never ceased being so. As a teenager I was depressed and writing poetry was an outlet for me. Later this outlet turned me into a writer devoted to the art of poetry. I have not published any poems but I have lots of poems I may one day publish. I write confessional poetry mainly and my biggest inspiration is Sylvia Plath.

I started writing fiction again in my early twenties. I started by writing a fanfiction for the TV show Alias to which I was obsessed with at the time. After finishing the novel length fanfiction, I turned to original fiction and I've been in love with writing fiction ever since.

My debut novel is Entangled in Darkness. I spent 2 years on this novel and wrote my heart and soul into it. It was inspired by my own experiences working and studying mental health, as a survivor of suicide, and from my own personal experiences. This was the novel I had to write in order to release the tension inside of me. So I wrote it, a fictional story inspired by real struggles of those that have mental illness or family members and friends with mental illness.

Now that I've written that, I plan to continue writing and explore other areas such as science fiction and fantasy which I love to read. I love space. I love the idea of space travel and the idea of worlds foreign to us in a vast universe we'll never know all of. So that's where my writing is heading next."

Annalyn is a new university student with a bright future ahead of her. Always at the top of her class she looks forward to university and her newfound independence with great excitement. She is ready to break away from her family and her dad's extreme moodiness. After only a couple days at university Annalyn feels a crushing depression that leaves her unable to get out of bed. This book is an amazingly heartbreaking and intense story of a family's struggle with mental illness. This story is a fascinating look into mental illness and how it affects not only the person dealing with the illness but the entire family as well.

WOW! What an intense and somber story. Entangled in Darkness by Lindsey Webster gets you from the Dedication and doesn't let go. This is a story of mental illness from the prospective of Annalyn Johanssen who is a freshmen at a University with her best friend Lexie. There she falls into a depression not knowing what is wrong with her. In the meantime, her father seems to also suffer from some type of mental illness which shows these types of diseases run in the family. Very heartbreaking and touching all at the same time.

This book has an interesting perspective on one women's journey into mental illness. It takes place just as the young woman is going to university and moving from her childhood home for the first time. The author has done a good job of setting the story up. There are some powerful images in this book, enough to make me tear up in places, and feel the anguish of the main character. It also showed how her family reacted to her journey. The book has some necessary difficult parts because of the feelings of the main character. I did find there were parts of the book that I did not enjoy as much, parts I felt the need to skim. It dragged in parts when I found it took away from the story. I wanted to know what was going to happen, yet I felt stuck. Of course this could have been intentional by the author, as the main character did feel stuck in places. For me it took away from the book. Overall I will recommend this book to people who I know might be interested in this topic. Although I thought it could be better in parts, I still enjoyed reading it. I would read more by this author.
